  • Notes 
    • "Oliver’s widow Isabel married secondly (or fourthly according to some sources), Sir John Ashton. John and Isabel were living at Howley Hall on 6 November 1470 when it was attacked by 200 armed men, led by John Mirfield (of Tong?) and Richard Leeds of Pontefract. The attack may have been incited by William Mirfield to get his mother and her husband to move out of the family home! Isabel died in 1488. It is said that there was once an inscription in Wakefield church "Hic jacet Dom. Isabella Asheton, vidua Joh. Asheton, militis et Mater Gulielmi Mirfield, militis, quae ob. 6 die Maii 1488". Administration of her estate was granted on 22 November 1488 to William Mirfield of Howley in the parish of Batley, armiger, and Thomas Wentworth of Elmsall in the parish of Kirkby."
